Vee (2016)

This is an introductory project to glassmaking, to create a glass vessel for a certain beverage. Vee is a free blown decanter for drip coffee that reduces unnecessary components for making coffee, and pushes the possibilities of the process by innovating a way to create an opening which houses the filter paper for coffee grounds, without the need of a third or even fourth component from existing drip coffee apparatuses on the market.

Vee’s tall, minimalist form accentuates the motion of coffee dripping as it filters through coffee ground into the vessel, allowing coffee drinkers to witness the soothing process of coffee being brewed from this unique, beautiful motion in addition to the refreshing scent of roasted, crisp coffee ground.
